Trucks will keep rolling but US border closed to tourism

The Canada-U.S. border closure has been extended for another 30 days.

Prime Minister Justin Trudeau made that announcement today, saying US officials were completely open to the extension.

The original closure agreement was reached in March–banning non-essential tyraffic but continuing to allow the movement of goods between the two countries.

That agreement was extended in April by 30 days and it was set to expire on May 21.

Trudeau said the moved to extend the closure in part because the provinces wanted to see it extended. The PM said Canada is looking at the issue of when to open the border to international traffic on a week-to-week basis.

“Every step, we have to make the right decisions based on the circumstances,” he said.

The move comes as provinces across the country gradually reopen businesses and services to the public. A new poll, done by DART & maru/BLUE, says that 83 per cent of Canadians agree the border should remain closed to non-commercial traffic.
